In this interactive activity, students will be led through steps to construct angles using a protractor. There are teaching activities as well as practice activities available. A handout that describes strategies taught during the interactive is available to be printed. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short quiz to assess their understanding.
Take the court with retired NBA star and current basketball analyst Kendall Gill to learn about the science of the perfect shot. We use angles every day—to build ramps and slides, steer a car, shoot basketballs, throw baseballs, and kick soccer balls. In fact, the science of angles is in almost every sport we play and every movement we make, so go out and play a game with your kids.
Using a small model, the CyberSquad tests various aiming points and learns about angles of reflection. They use this knowledge to escape a cave. The CyberSquad decides to slide the key along the ice until it bounces off the cave wall and travels to Jackie and Matt on the other side.
